Here is a terrific collection of songs by Ian Mcleish, one of Canada's finest songwriters.Features "The Man You're With Tonight", "Standing On The Levee" "Letting You Go Again", "If You Think - Goin' Away Blues", & the fabulous X-rated "Susan (The Honesty Song)".

Over the years I have worked with many musicians in different varieties of musical adventures. The music changed and evolved, but I always had songs that just didn't fit the bands I was playing with at the time.

Those songs sat in drawers and on cassettes and reel-to-reel tapes, mostly unheard for years, until now. Some recordings, which date back to the 70's, I decided to use as I felt they had the "feel" or soul of the song, regardless of small errors. In most cases the original track was supplemented with new bass, second guitar and/or vocal to enhance the original demo and make it listenable.
Another batch of songs were recorded throughout the 90's between sessions for RPM, Random Axis or MKM albums, and the final batch were done over the last two years, some new songs as well as cover versions of some favourites. Enjoy!
-Ian Mcleish
